Value for Individual Athletes

Experience

combine-wprospects-2016-1.gifThis is an opportunity to be tested using the same equipment and tests that are utilized at the Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game, as well as NHL teams, including the Montreal Canadiens, Edmonton Oilers, Los Angeles Kings and Philadelphia Flyers. This year all four Western Provinces will test their top U15 athletes as part of their High Performance programs, including additional high performance programs and events. The reality is, as a competitive hockey player, eventually you may be in a situation where you will have to perform the combine testing under pressure, and your performance will affect your chances of making the cut. Here’s an opportunity for you to familiarize yourself with each test and experience the testing in a comfortable setting, with constructive feedback!

Exposure

After being tested, athletes are given access to an extensive on-line database with WHL tested players. Athletes can compare themselves against other athletes to see where they rank against the best while at the same time using their individual test scores to make adjustments to their own training and skill development programs to help them reach their highest level.

The test results for all athletes are entered into the exclusive WHL Database that is used by WHL General Managers and Head Scouts to track and identify athletes for their teams.

Growth

Upon completion of a WHL Combine Testing, each participant receives the following:

  • Athlete Report: individual athlete results and combine comparative results to event peers
  • Sport Pulse: progress report comparing all historical individual athlete testing results
  • Access to WHL Database: compare your results to over 7000 athletes tested with WHL Combines
  • Access to Sport Testing Database: compare your results to over 20,000 athletes tested with SportTesting
  • Use your results to track your development progress, highlight areas of weakness, and target your off-ice and on-ice training needs
  • All WHL General Managers have access to WHL Combine Database as a prospect/scouting resource
